The Teacher

Miss Petito

Hi.  I am a native Italian speaker who is fluent in Latin. I am a highly experienced teacher of Latin at Lower school, IGCSE and A Level, with a proven track record of helping students achieve great success.  As well as Latin, I am excited to be teaching some new subjects this year – GCSE Classical Greek and A Level Classical Studies. I am passionate about languages and also about ancient culture and civilisation.  It brings me great joy to share my knowledge with young people and to see them learn to love languages too.
